To those who MIGRATE to the city and county of San Francisco from out of state

I've been wanting to post a speel on this for the longest time now...

Many of those who migrate to SF for various reasons (whether it's because it's a major gay mecca or what not) should realize that SF is NOT an isolated bubble.  For those of us who have been fortunate enough to grow up in the San Francisco Bay Area, we have a fondness of this region as a whole... appreciating the uniqueness this region has to offer.

It annoys me to no other (and I know I'm not alone in this) that many migrants to SF think that crossing a bridge or travelling outside the City and County is like a gruelling trip for them.  It also annoys me that these same kind of people think that SF is superior to any other Bay Area community.  Um, no queeny bitches!  First off, SF is not the largest city in this region.  The city of San Jose is.  Second, just because someone lives across the bridge or down the Peninsula, it does not mean that SF is not their home!  It is our home, it is a part of our upbringing, and this alone makes SF more home to us than to you.

With this all being said, please do us Bay Area natives a huge favor...

Please think of the San Francisco Bay Area as a whole.

Look at a map and familiarize yourself with the nearby communities

Never look down at someone because they say they're from the East Bay, South Bay or what not.

Us natives would be more appreciative of you if you're capable of bursting out of the SF bubble :)

Thank you!
